Welcome to my blog! This space has been used over the past several years to document mainly my natural hair journey and several different aspects of my life such as spiritual matters, my jewelry design, and parenting. I will from time to time post on this blog but my newly revamped blog can be found at BeautifullyCurled.com. Here you will find much recent updates about my hair journey along with my daughter's and so much more. Hope you will come by and visit and thanks for stopping by this blog. Be blessed. -Kris
Who Influences You? Part 1 of 2 Series
Why this particular individual? Well, this woman has been through hell over high water and I would have never known if she hadn't expressed it. I mean she had gone through things I could have never imagined her going through (abuse, low self esteem, feeling of unworthiness, infertility, and etc) because of who she is today in my eyes: a beautiful, strong, confident, talented, and bold woman of God.
It is because of the things she has gone through and her humbleness and willingness to share some of her darkest life moments with her sisters in Christ that has really had a positive influence on me. It is people who share things that are taboo to talk about in Church and how God has brought them through that leave the lasting influence in my life. It shows how God has worked so wonderfully in their lives to turn dark, negative situations into positive ones in order for Him to get the utmost glory from His people. I truly appreciate testimonies like these because I can very much relate to the "down and out but God turned it around" stories.
Because of this sister who has been so open to share her many testimonies to me and others, she has given me the courage to one day be an open book and share my testimony to others so I can hopefully be a positive influence to others just like she has been to me.
But what about now? How am I a positive influence now?
Stay tuned for part 2.
In the meanwhile, who are some of your strongest influences and why? These can be both positive and negative (like I mentioned, good can come from the negative Romans 8:28). I certainly do not judge.
Be blessed and BE.YOU.Always
